Over There
Album: Staring At the Sun - Artist: Level 42



 
(M. King/M. Lindup)

I'm a soldier of fortune
I've come to save the day
There's a country that's needs me
And an enemy to slay
All my friends are in uniform
God is on our side
But I'm leaving my baby back home

As we head for the ocean
Our spirits are high
"To battle, to glory, what a lovely way to die!"
Looking back at the shoreline
Ringing in my ears
Are the words of my baby back home

  Where are you going to so far away
  Your dreams of glory will soon fade away
  We are so young, so much in love
  Your country needs you but I need you more
  So far away
  Over there

Out on the frontline the story has changed
For the glory of battle is the myth on printed page
As my friends fall around me
I wonder when I die
Will they carry my body back home

  What are you searching for so far away
  Your dreams of glory will soon fade away
  We are so young, so much in love
  I'm so afraid I won't see you again
  Your country needs you but I need you more
  So far away
  Over there
  So far away
  Over there

  Where are you going to so far away
  Your dreams of glory will soon fade away
  So many lives wasted away
  So many die again and again
  Some people say that the knights are all gone
  Some people say that the dragons are dead
  But the dragon lives on
  As the spectre of war
  And the killing and slaying goes on as before

  Will it ever end
  Oh... will it ever end
  Will it ever end.... ?
